Exuviae is an immense release, bar none. While it still feels brief for a full length record, it packs everything the fan of modern heavy music could want out of a release, and then some. Incorporating elements of the long-lost genre groove metal into a backbone of jarring deathcore and topping it off with a unique midwestern flavor, Exuviae is aggressive and catchy; sinister and surreal, daunting and devilishly devastating throughout its run time, seeing Hive earn the lofty reputation they rightfully boast—and then some. ~ Connor Welsh
